The year of the dragon is already a bit on it's way
but a good week ago
I found the dragon to go with it.
( I had bought two of them earlier, but both became a present )
I very much love the bright colours !
And he goes so well with the dragon
( or winged snake Naga )
I bought almost 20 years ago on Bali !!!
The warm colours of Naga will be mirrored
in the knitting I started this week.
The two skeins of the Araucania wool were in a drawer
for some time, and all the other reds that I wanted to use together with it.
( the colours look a bit more pink then they really are )
I will knit a little vest in the "Horst Schulz" way : module knitting.
This technique was explained in the 5/1993 and 2/1994 issue
of the Dutch needle craft magazine "Handwerken zonder Grenzen"
And this is what the vest will look like, only in a different colour
( this one I gave to my dear friend M, it fitted her better than me ... )
So .... there are a LOT more little squares to be knit !
Great knitting! I have an angel from Bali hanging in my studio...love their woodwork!BeantwoordenVerwijderen
The dragon is fabulous, Els - I love the yarn colors, and the knitting pattern is most intricate. -susBeantwoordenVerwijderen
I have no idea how you do that, but those knitted blocks are just brilliant. They look like patchwork :-)BeantwoordenVerwijderen
i just love modular knitting...and you are doing such a lovely job! i remember knitting socks like that back in my knitting days. seeing your vest reminds me that i have a sweater or two in unfinished states. wonder if i'll ever find the time to finish them up? no matter. in the meantime, i get to enjoy your beautiful creations!BeantwoordenVerwijderen
They look so beautiful - reminding me a bit of Noro art.BeantwoordenVerwijderen
